That’s all a fan could ask for, right? Well, in any case, here is the premise of Irresponsible Captain Tylor for those who may not be familiar.

Justy Ueki Tylor has his life already planned out. He plans to join the military, serve a few good years out of risk, and get retire with a lofty pension check. However, he soon found himself in the wrong place at the wrong time and wound up saving the life of an esteemed Admiral.

Now, as a “reward”, Tylor has been placed as a captain on the space cruiser, Soyokaze. With no leadership abilities at all, his rag-tag team doesn’t like him. However, Tylor’s team has been tasked with defeating the mighty Raalgon Empire.

Serving as Earth’s last hope, Tylor will either live up to the occasion or the whole world is doomed.

How the Mobile Suit Gundam Series Sparked the Anime Boom of the 80’s

Brandon

I bet you’re wondering about how anime came to prominence. Well, it kind of started after the release of the film, Mobile Suit Gundam. This movie sparked the beginning of the anime boom of the 80’s, and the series has become world-renowned and an anime classic. However, let me explain how Mobile Suit Gundam made anime what it is today.

It Wasn’t Popular at First

Zeta Gundam

When Mobile Suit Gundam debuted in 1979 as an anime series, it was not popular at all. Around this time, anime was still taking shape, and Mobile Suit Gundam was only one of a handful of mecha anime series. They weren’t really popular with a lot of people because fans were only used to fantasy titles at the time.

Thus, in 1980, the show was cancelled due to super low ratings. However, no one expected the series to be reborn as a legendary anime classic, and mecha anime staple.

Star Wars Changed Everything

Star Wars

I’m pretty sure everyone is familiar with the movie, Star Wars and the sequels that followed. Well, the original Star Wars movie came out in 1977, and it was an international hit. Everyone loved the “cool graphics” and “effects” (the quotations hint my sarcasm.) and considered the movie to be the future.

That’s when space operas became a hit, and the mecha genre flourished. Then in 1981, Yoshiyuki Tomino directed Mobile Suit Gundam’s full length movie. Four words can sum up the success of the film. It was a hit! The movie’s ratings were on the same par as Star Wars, and American audiences were becoming obsessed.

Now the Series is Legendary

in 1985, Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam was released as the sequel to Mobile Suit Gundam. The anime was a hit and was widely considered to be the best installment of the series, even to this day. Even when Star Wars became more popular, especially in America, Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam reached a lot of kids in the 80s who dreamed of controlling a robot in space.

From that point, anime started to become acclaimed in the 80s, and different genres were released such as Dragon Ball and Fist of the North Star. That’s actually when anime fandom began and things changed course for the better.

So, all in all, it was all thanks to Mobile Suit Gundam that anime became popular, especially in America. So, in accordance to The May Mecha Remembrance month, let us all give the illustrious anime series its credit for changing the scope of anime in the 70s and 80s.

Brandon Lee’s Amazing and Spectacular Anime Introduction

Brandon

Introduction

Hello, guys! My name is Brandon Lee, and I a writer, entrepreneur, and a video game developer, among other things. I have been watching anime since I was 4 years old, all the way back when you could actually watch some of the popular shows like Naruto, One Piece, and Zatch Bell on Cartoon Network. So, yes, I am a 90’s kid. Anyway, I started writing professional because I guess I was good at it. Soon after working long 9-5 days writing about boring things like upholstery and…computer maintenance, I became bored and starting writing about the things I like. That’s why I’m here.

How I Got into Anime

When I was young, my dad introduced me to Dragon Ball Z, a series he watched in his childhood. I loved the show, and I used to binge watch it after school. Then, Naruto and One Piece came out and became favorites of mine as well. Soon, I found myself venturing into the deeper side of anime, watching horror, action, romance, and comedy genres. I even joined the anime club at my high school and started watching the lesser known shows that kind of deepened my fandom.

A Few Things About Me

anime wave goodbye

Although I have been watching anime for years, I am kind of new to the anime fandom in general, so bear with me if I don’t know what a tsundere is. I do, by the way. I’m just saying. Also, in my free time, I develop RPGs, which I blend anime elements into. I’ll be releasing one in a year or two, so look out for me. I think I should also add that my favorite anime genres are action, horror, comedy, slick of life, school drama, and romance. Though, harems usually get on my nerves.

My favorite anime shows are: Naruto, Naruto Shippuden, Zero no Tsukaima, Shakugan no Shana, Dragon Ball Z, Baka and Test, and Konosuba, just to name a few.

I guess that’s about it for this introduction. I believe that I’ll be here for a while, writing about everything that interests me, whether you like it or not. See you guys, around! I’ll leave you with this:
